Steward's Comments:

We are headed to the S-FaR East at Suzuka this week.

Saving Replays, Viewing sector times and Submissions:
  • You need to make sure you use the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below).
  • Before saving your replay ensure that you continue running after completing your fast lap until at least the end of first sector. This will ensure you have a complete replay.
  • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Library' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replays' option.
  • While viewing your Replay, enter the live timing screen to view your sector splits. You will need to do this after your car has passed the sector markers to see it listed.
  • Simply post the splits that are shown in the live timing screen, and our Fetchbot will parse them and add them together for your total sector time.
  • When saving your fastest lap replay please ensure that you watch the replay to the end and that it displays your full lap time. Any replays submitted that do not show the posted lap time will result in a DQ.
  • Remember - When you submit your time you're also declaring that your run is 100% clean. We request replays for the purpose of verifying to all those concerned that the drivers claim is correct, which in turn safeguards the integrity of the driver, and just as importantly, the WRS. The golden rule is to check your replay before submission. If youre still unsure, check it again, ask for a second opinion and if youre still undecided, run the lap again.

Thread rules:

The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on Discord or via other private IM service.):
  • Total Lap Time.
  • Any information which can be used to infer your total lap time.
  • If you choose to Share your Best-Lap Replay via GT7 before the deadline,your full lap time will be considered to be shared publicly which contravenes our rules. Even if you've only shared with Friends.

Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 25 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):
  • Please submit your FULL LAP TIME in the following format on a single line:
    X:XX.XXX
    (Example-)
    1:10.100
  • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
  • ?For those of you who were used to submitting replays on GT6, you no longer have the ability to export the files.?
  • If you have an error, don't panic. Just review the instructions for submission and submit again. If you are having trouble and cannot figure it out, please post your question in the race thread.
  • Users can ask the bot for the current submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 25 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
  • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 25 Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
  • If you want to submit multiple times in the week just reply to the conversation with your new time. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
  • The deadline is Monday, October 3rd 2022 11:59pm GMT
  • If you are unsure of the deadline try this site.
Why Use GMT?:
GMT is World Time and the basis of every world time zone which sets the time of day and is at the centre of the time zone map. GMT sets current time or official time around the globe. Most time changes are measured by GMT. Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.

Replay Checking:
  • Division winners and overperformers will be required to submit a replay via the GT7 Share function for verification AFTER Unofficial Results have been posted.
  • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Replay Verify Required).
  • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification.

Good luck,

I do love to bash around a little road car - these are always my favourite things to drive in a GT game.

I didn't actually own this car until buying it for this, and wow, what a surprisingly pleasant drive. Even on comforts, this car can really handle being thrown around the corners of this track, it is completely glued down.

Couple of questions:
1: How do you take the last corner legally? The darn kerb stops short meaning I've cut the track every lap LOL oops.
2: (Having now read the clutch, and thus H-pattern shifter is banned, but I was having fun!) Why does the car randomly drop out of gear mid way through the revs after I change gears with the H pattern gearbox? Is that a known issue to anyone here as to why that's happening? Makes road cars a bit less fun when you randomly fall out of gear long after you got it to shift.
3: How does one put 3 sectors together?
Good little combo, had a blast in the SF-R on GTSport at Willow and it looks to be the same again here!

Quite a fun little car! Shame it never went past prototype/concept phase, I imagine it'd have been a good competitor to the ND MX5. That said, doing the time trial with an Xbox controller over Remote Play feels like heresy to me, so I will be taking another shot at this in the sim rig later tonight. :lol:

I don't think you're supposed to hug the inside of that final corner. I've been treating it as a double apex corner.


Edit: Turns out the wheel was the right call!

The track is more challenging than anticipated.

This is a fun chucking machine. I found it easier to keep it in 4th through the entirety of the S-curves.

I am bummed I have not run an entire lap except for taking photos and testing. I LOVED chucking this car around. Closing our cottage for the winter. Hopefully I will get a chance to try on Monday.

I'm back from my break and might have time to give this a try before closing time.

Steven, looks like your setting is 135bhp instead of 133. My Dutch is not great but I presume 'pk' is perdekrag as it is in Afrikaans, so horse power?
My guess is it's metric horsepower (PS), as 133 (b)hp = 135 PS.

Back from summer voyages.
Not the cleanest of laps (had to touch the brake in mid-last corner), but good enough to scrape some rust off.

Correct. This car was purchased freshly so pretty sure that the settings are A-ok.

PK is paardekracht (perdekrag 😁) or horsepower.

I'll share my replay later today, especially if someone needs verification. Good round, all.
